Two years ago I posted a pattern for a cardigan, Olivia - very pretty, soft and gentle.
Even if I say so myself, it's a wonderful pattern. Here's the picture of the original cardi.
However... the problem is the yarn I used. The lovely soft yarn sheds like mad. You just have to touch it gently and you end up with a handful of fluff. Just looking at the picture I can see the fluff starting to shed everywhere.
So I decided to reknit the pattern using ordinary double knitting yarn - no mohair! Here's the new version.
I enjoyed knitting the pattern up again - it grows surprisingly quickly and the end result, I think, is so feminine. I used Sirdar country style DK this time - it took less then 6 x 50g balls!
This version is so wearable, I should have made it sooner. You can see full details of the project on my Ravelry page, here.
